Spinning Box Giveaway!

You knew it was coming didn’t you? Mary from The Spinning Box has a box waiting for one lucky KnittyBlog reader. To make you even more excited about the possibility of winning a box let me show you better photos of the fibers inside mine.

I took these photos this past weekend on a crafty girls weekend away and I had to bat away the grabby hands of my friends. These fibers are so nice and the colors are succulent. The theme of my box was stars and space, the box you might win is going to be a surprise.

I guessed that what you really wanted to see was the fiber more than any company’s label, so some of the labels are hard to read or even not there. I am listing names, links and fiber content below the collage. The fiber total was 12 oz, if you remember last photos last week there was also candy, buttons and soap from SLAB, which is already in my shower.

All of the fiber in my Spinning Box.

The fibers in the box are:

Top (L to R): Camaj Fiber Arts/Merino, bamboo/ Space Sunrise; The Wooly Lion/Merino,Alpaca,Mohair (all local) and firestar/ Galaxy; MK Unique Designs/Merino, nylon,thread/Cosmos

Middle (L to R): Totally Inked Yarn/SW Merino/Andromeda; The Spinning Box & Tucker Nuck Farm/ Merino; Alpaca Serenades/Alpaca, wool, angelina/Annie’s Comet

Bottom (L to R):  Camaj Fiber Arts/Corriedale/Mother of Moons; Rock and String Creations/ 100% Merino/ Cosmos; Fawkes Farms/Alpaca, BFL, silk, angelina/ Galaxy Far, Far Away

    I’ve just gotten a spinning wheel. It would be so fun to make yarn from a collection like this!!

  2. Amy B

    I’m finally in a spinning mood. I love to spin outdoors and we’re in for some nice weather (it seems like it would never get here). This is just the thing that gets me motivated. Time to get spinning!!

  3. Aimee Haase

    Oh Em Gee! I just got my first spinning wheel, and I love spinning pretty fibers! Merino/silk is my current favorite but anything colorful is just as acceptable. Maybe I need to branch out?

  4. Kristen K

    What a perfect way to get back some spinning mojo! So lovely – thanks for the opportunity!

  5. Judy Phillips

    Spinning is a distant fantasy for me at this point, so I am not commenting to win, just to say Wow! One day I’ll have the time and money to disappear down that rabbit hole!!

  6. Jennifer Davis

    Does it tell you something about how much I covet this was that my first thought was how much I’d love to literally just practically roll in it all? Followed by the thought of how exactly I would spin each and every one of these lovelies.

    Please, please, please rng look favorably on me.

  7. Fara

    I’m a new spinner and this looks like just the thing to get me hooked! Thank you Knitty!

  8. Chloe

    Oh wow. It would be such a treat to have a spinning box like this. Thank you for the giveaway!

  9. Laura

    That doesn’t look anything like the pounds of white and grey-brown that have been on my wheel for months!

  10. Kitten WAW

    I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t want to get better with my spinning. HUH? OK, what I mean is that I no longer want to produce perfectly even yarn that looks like I could have bought it at the LYS. I did it once, and it was a complete anticlimax. Instead, I learned to love the inconsistencies that make my spun yarn unique. Part of that is being able to work with as many different fibers and blends as possible, so I can continue to be surprised by the results.

  11. Alexandra

    What a great way to get to try many different fibers and preps. I wish I could reach through the screen and just touch everything!

  12. Judy

    Just signed up for a drop spindle class at a fiber festival here in Montana in July. This would be perfect!

  13. Chelsea

    Lovely colors! This would be fun for trying out a new Turkish spindle I was given this Christmas 🙂

  14. Sherry

    I’d love it if Knitty had patterns for combining yarn made from batts and sample boxes… these are gorgeous and I’d love to try them, but I always spin for a project, and I never quite know what to do with less than 4oz at a time.

  15. Audrea

    Couldn’t resist a Spinning Box giveaway, through my favorite item from a box is Zuzu Beans lanolin lip balm. It’s acai berry and amazing! The boxes are always a treat to open too!

  16. Enid

    What an amazing box of fibers and generous giveaway! I am just learning to spin and getting used to my wheel, so I am trying out a lot of fibers to learn different hands. A box like this would give me lots to work with!

  17. Mimi

    Love the idea of this box and would love even more to win it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. Nicole H.

    Thank you for the giveaway! I started to spin about six months ago and I am loving trying out new fibers!

  19. Kathy Rogers

    Yes, please! I want to spin all the things! Always on the lookout for pretty new fibers to play with.

  20. Rosie L

    Oh wow! I am a relatively new support spindle convert but would love to go on an adventure with these beautiful fibres 🙂

  21. Josiane

    I would *love* to have the opportunity to get a Spinning Box! As I looked at the assortment of fibers you’ve received in your box, I’ve felt that it’d be a wonderful way for me to experiment and be more playful with my spinning, and that would be a very good thing. 🙂
    Thank you for introducing us to the Spinning Box, and for giving us a chance at winning one.

  22. Kim

    Holy cow, that’s a box of goodies! Would love to receive this – it would be good incentive to finally learn how to spin.

  23. Gale

    Beautiful fiber can’t wait to do some summer spinning, I’m a beginner so the will take me time to do.

  24. Penelope Goodes

    What a fantastic introduction to a whole range of fibre artists. The only danger is that I’d want to roll in all that gorgeous fibre and then it would all get messed out of alignment! 🙂

    * I promise no actual harm would actually befall any fibre I received. So far I have never once rolled in my stash, however much I’ve wanted to.

  25. Doris Mejia

    Gorgeous! I’m a relatively new spindler (2 years) and love trying new fibers. Great practice and incentive to practice!

  26. Meredith MC

    Yes please- I’d love a really exciting reason to set up my wheel. Poor things been living in a box since I moved. Gorgeous stuff!

  27. Bobbie

    Oh wow, those are *stunning*. My only regret is not having bought the stars and space themed one, but I can’t imagine the others would be any less fantastic.

  28. Kay

    This is beautiful!

    Are these appropriate for beginners? (I’ve done a very little bit of spinning and no plying at all yet on a drop spindle.)

  29. Ginny

    Wow! I was just helping a friend skirt some fleeces and I was imagining what possible yarn could be made with each fleece but only after lots of hand processing. What luxury to have such beautiful fibers in a box just waiting to be spun.

  30. Gail

    Lovely fiber. I am a fairly new spinner and love love love it. My only regret is that i didnt discover it sooner. I have an Ashford Traveler.

  31. Kate

    Oh, how lovely! (Makes me even more excited about my favorite sheep & wool festival coming up over Memorial Day weekend – so many beautiful fibers, so little time!)

  32. Chloe

    I just started spinning again after a long break and would love to try out all these gorgeous fibers!

  33. Rita Hanigan

    Those fibers are truly beautiful! Would love to spin them up and use them on my new Baby Wolf when it gets here!

  34. Cheryl STEGERT

    Just starting to get back into a routine of spinning and this box of wonderful fiber could kick it in to high gear!

  35. Cheryl STEGERT

    Just starting to get back into a routine of spinning and this box of wonderful fiber could kick it in to high gear! Hope to win but if not me some other luck spinner!

  36. Beate (bat)

    What a nice combination of natural and man made fibers in one box, gorgeous!
    Need to visit all the fiber shops this evening. Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win!

  37. Loren

    Not usually tempted by monthly clubs but these spinning boxes may change my mind. Lovely!

  38. Laurinda Pudlo

    I’m not sure when exactly this contest closes (Sunday is the 21st), but since the prize is so lovely, I’ll try for it anyway & cross my fingers 😀

  39. Reno

    Do I have to spin it? Can’t I just roll around in it? My fingers are quite itchy to spin these wonderful goodies.
